Brooklyn-based indie band Yeasayer is in the middle of a Summer-long North America tour, and they've been traveling with a prismatic light show environment designed to transform small music venues into stadium rock experiences.

Created by Casey Reas and Aaron Meyers, Yeasayer's set designconsists of electronic canvases manufactured by Asteriskos, which stream trippy visuals throughout each show. The band can even control the light show in real time, and use a special motion capture app to distort their faces.
